Thinking of selling or buying in 2018? It's not too late to catch the wave! I'm sipping a tall glass of iced sun tea as I write this on a hot and humid Saturday morning. July's heat is more than making up for our colder than usual June! Does weather affect the Palos Verdes real estate market? Yes, but not nearly as much as in other parts of the U.S. Once in a while I will have a showing cancellation due to extreme heat, but those are rare. Many homes have air conditioning or ocean breezes--sometimes both, making touring houses [...]

Rolling Hills Real Estate Report May 2018

By | May 17th, 2018|Buyer Tip, Horse Property, Lifestyle in Palos Verdes, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Seller Tip|

The Rolling Hills real estate market remains in a neutral market favoring neither the seller nor the buyer. The higher price point of Rolling Hills residences translates to a slower absorption rate.  Many RH homes spend more days on the market than properties in other Palos Verdes real estate submarkets. The luxury market for homes over $3,000,000 is another example of higher prices usually translating to more days on the market due to a smaller pool of qualified buyers. There are 30 Rolling Hills homes for sale and only six in escrow at the time of this writing. Eight Rolling [...]

  The single-family residential real estate market on the Palos Verdes Peninsula continues to maintain its firm grasp on a seller's market, even with a slight growth in inventory since last month's report. Demand continues to keep the supply in check. Timing plays a vital role in real estate, and this is the time of year buyers yearn to make a move to their neighborhood of choice. Fortunately, Palos Verdes buyers have a few more options with the increased supply, and sellers usually have more showings during the spring and summer months. However, a well-appointed and well-priced home will attract [...]

Rolling Hills Estates Real Estate Report March 2018

By | April 2nd, 2018|Palos Verdes|

I spent a chilly March morning reviewing listings and sales in Rolling Hills Estates, and RHE has the dubious honor of having the lowest single-family residence inventory of homes for sale of the four cities located on the Palos Verdes  Peninsula. At the time of my research, Rolling Hills Estates had only 14 single-family properties for sale. When the unincorporated areas of the Palos Verdes Peninsula are included (the Multiple Listing Service includes the unincorporated areas in the PVDN area) the number of homes for sale increases slightly. However, it is evident with nine single-family homes in escrow Rolling Hills [...]

Sustainable Luxury Homes

By | December 14th, 2017|Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Luxury Homes|

One of the things I appreciate most about luxury homes in Palos Verdes is the use of timeless materials during the construction. Marble, limestone, granite, quartz, and hardwood floors will last for generations to come. The initial choices (and expense) are more than justified by the longevity of the materials. I had the pleasure of living in a 1929 home in St. Petersburg, Florida. The wood floors were original and beautifully restored by the previous owner. The bathroom tiles were original as were the pedestal sinks. I upgraded the kitchen with a professional Wolf six-burner stove, a commercial Traulsen refrigerator/freezer, [...]

Homes For Sale in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.

By | November 28th, 2017|An Agent's Life, Buyer Tip, Front Page, Los Angeles, Los Angeles Luxury Homes, Palos Verdes, Rancho Palos Verdes Lisitng Agent|

  Tuesday is tour day for new listings in Palos Verdes. This morning, the list is rather short due to entering the after Thanksgiving holiday countdown, and the seemingly permanent condition of inventory shortage for Palos Verdes and other cities in the South Bay of Los Angeles. Today, there is only one new listing I need to preview for a prospective buyer. However, on the upside, it's a gorgeous day, so perhaps as I meander along Palos Verdes Drive South, I will capture a few more coastal photos I can use on my blog to display the beauty of our [...]
